The WHITE COAT WASTE PROJECT is a fantastic organisation. They spotted a form of madness, wastefulness and moral turpitude, which other organisations had missed. It was the funding by the US government of laboratories occupied by men and women in white coats experimenting on animals in foreign countries with goals that are not in the best interests of America. The funding of course comes from American taxpayers and these laboratories are in countries such as Russia and China; frankly, adversaries of America.
As far as we know, this is the first time in history that funding has been cut for animal testing across an entire country. It’s a B.F.D.! – WHITE COAT WASTER PROJECT
The experiments on animals are obviously objectionable but it’s worse than that. American taxpayer dollars were being used to fund experiments in the disgraced Wuhan lab via Eco-Health Alliance. As I understand it the Wuhan lab has military connections and they are allegedly engaged in biowarfare testing on a coronavirus taken from bats found in a mineshaft in the north of China. There is increasing evidence to suggest that the Wuhan lab was the source of Covid-19. Madness that the lab was part-funded by America taxpayer dollars.
And in Russia, American taxpayer’s money was being used to fund highly objectionable experiments on cats for military purposes. As WHITE COAT WASTE PROJECT (WCW) state this was an extremely wasteful use of taxpayer money for highly objectionable laboratory experiments. It had to stop and they stopped it. It was mad in another way: America raises its national debt every year it seems to me. It now stands at $23 trillion (23 thousand million).
I have received an email from them which states that the US House panel which funds the Department of Defence (DOD) has just passed its 2024 spending bill. The bill includes language which WCW lobbied for and which “cuts DOD funding to the Wuhan animal lab and all other labs in China, Russia, and other adversarial nations”.
This bill also “cuts DOD funding to any animal experiments, virus-hunting or other projects in China involving the disgraced Wuhan lab funder, EcoHealth Alliance”.
The WCW’s campaign documented at least 32 animal testing labs in China and Russia which were receiving taxpayer funding for which were eligible to receive funding in recent years.
Thanks to their campaign, NIH (National Institutes of Health) “Recently disqualified the Wuhan animal lab and all animal labs in Russia from future taxpayer funding”.
If the bill is passed by the full US House and signed into law the bill will disqualify all labs across China and Russia from Pentagon funding as well.
Americans should thank House Defence Appropriations Subcommittee Members Reps. Chris Stewart (R-UT) and Dave Joyce (R-OH) to include this important measure in the bill.
The following is a statement from Justin Goodman, Senior Vice President, White Coat Waste Project:
“Taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill for foreign enemies’ animal experimentation labs, and we’re proud of the progress we’re making to find, expose and defund this waste and abuse in Wuhan and beyond. If signed into law, this bill would prohibit the Pentagon from sending tax dollars to white coats in dozens of animal labs run by China, Russia and other adversarial nations. Our Worldwide Waste campaign first exposed how the DOD, NIH, USAID, and other federal agencies recklessly ship billions of tax dollars to unaccountable foreign animal labs, including how EcoHealth funneled funds to the Wuhan lab for dangerous gain-of-function animal experiments that likely caused COVID and how taxpayer unwittingly funded a Kremlin-linked lab crippling cats. The solution is simple: Stop the money. Stop the madness!”
And from Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT):
“Our foreign adversaries, particularly China, have proven they should not and cannot be trusted with American taxpayer dollars to conduct laboratory research and experiments. Cutting American funding to research labs in adversarial nations that pose a threat to our national security should never be a partisan issue. I’d like to thank my colleagues who have recognized the importance of this effort.”
